"Several not-so-careful Owners"

There was a Beetle rally on Paignton Green in the summer, which attracted bugs from around the country. They came in various colours and various states of condition. This forlorn specimen caught my eye and I felt that it would make a good subject for a painting.
Rather than paint the whole car I decided to opt for a close-up, the single headlight looking like one big, sad eye.
Lots of rust! Lots of Character!
